Pitching is solid. Any bench?
Thats interesting, I was thinking almost the exact opposite.
I was by and far the leader in SB's so I traded away some speed for power (I traded Ichiro and Dunn for Tejada and Helton) and am still the leader in SB's. I think my weakest spot in my lineup is Pierre and I want to get rid of him. He is one-dimensional and only adds SB's...nothing else, so I'm not sure why he is so highly touted. Plus he is sucking it up in spring training, caught stealing 3 times already.
You said my pitching is solid, which is what I thought was my weakest part of the team. I hear Dontrell Willis is going to suck and I am not sure if Chad Cordero can repeat his performace of last year.
Also Felix Hernadez and Eddie Guardado will be pitching for the Mariners, who (although are my favorite team), suck, so I am not sure of their value.
